Why am i not getting Nitrates?
So im brand new to fish keeping and im doing my cycle i tested tonight and i got
Ammonia somewhere between 1 and 2 closer to 1 ( im using the drop testing kit by APi
my tank is only 5 days old but i have put one and a half bottles of stability in so far, 9 i know im impatient but i thought that if there is nitrite ( the readings have been the same for the last 2 days) that there should be nitrate forming...
I also put two dead shrimps into the tank two days ago... if you have any other tips or thoughts on why there is no nitrate would be muchly appreciated..
Thanks in advance,
